Tangerine Tango

This cute little asterisk mini quilt is my entry
 for the Tangerine Tango Challenge on Flickr.

One of my college roommates LOVED orange . . . 
I can still picture her in one of her many orange sweatshirts!
And I never really liked it until I started quilting.
But now I LOVE the brightness and energy
 that the color orange gives to quilts!

I did an all over pebble quilting design in the white spaces,
to make the colors pop.
I love the texture created by pebble quilting!

This mini quilt is actually a pillow -- 
for the back I used this bright "good earth" print
by Alexander Henry--
lots of the tangerine shade of orange in this print!
Linking up to Finish it up Friday at crazymomquilts!
